Proceeds from an online sale that includes a vintage telescope, a pearl pendant brooch and more will go to helping restore the Loring-Greenough House.
"Double the pleasure of shopping by knowing that your purchase will help preserve our neighborhood gem, the Loring-Greenough House, and will support our popular programs," said Diane Spears, president of the Loring-Greenough House. "Plans are afoot to restore and rehab the kitchen. A study is now underway to determine the feasibility of adaptive rehabilitation of the Ell, largely left untouched since its construction in 1911."
The Loring-Greenough House hosts events such as Sunday afternoon concerts, teas, lectures like this past weekend's "Life and Death in Colonial Times," gatherings of local community groups and more. One of the most popular events is Summer Thursdays on the Lawn with live music, food trucks, local vendors and more.
